Eritrea house in Keren

Margaret Reardon lived in this house together with her husband, who was assigned to Eritrea between 1946 and 1951. During this time the former Italian colony was under British Military Rule. Neighbours ‘could be a distance away at times, perhaps a mile away’, according to Reardon.
